One of Life's Truths

It's been days since I've looked at my manuscript. Granted, I've gotten back on my workout schedule (3 times at Curves this week - yay!) and spent some quality time with the family. But I'm really not very happy.

I don't mean "not happy that I haven't even opened the Word file on my computer", but a general sense of unhappiness has literally pervaded my life.

My simple truth boils down to this: if I'm not writing, I'm not happy.

So there's only one thing to do to correct this - write.

And that's just what I intend to do.

Do you feel a change in your personality or mood if you don't write?


  1. Absolutely! I become the queen of grump. Very little patience and a whole lot of irritability. Get thee to a keyboard, sister!

  2. YES! When I'm writing I feel great - kind of like the high you get from endorphins after a good workout. When I'm not writing, I get super-blue and am probably not very fun to be around!

  3. Yes, although I go through periods when I decide not to write, when I *can't* find the time to write, you wouldn't want to be in the vicinity :)

  4. Yes, when I'm not writing,it's always in the back of my mind. I carry around a low-level sense of disappointment and tension -- like there's something I should be doing. Sometimes I wonder why I do this to myself, but I can't seem to help it.


I love to hear from you!
